Community Event
"Labor Wars of the Northwest" Documentary
The Olympia Historical Society & Bigelow House Museum and South Puget Sound Community College are co-sponsoring the showing of the documentary film “Labor Wars of the Northwest,” on May 1, at 7 p.m. on the campus of South Puget Sound Community College in the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center, 2011 Mottman Rd., Olympia. Tickets, available for purchase at the door, are priced at $7 for the public, $5 for OHS & BHM members and free for South Puget Sound Community College students with identification. Admission cost does not include a $3.00 service fee assessed by the Minnaert Center. Following the film, there will be a discussion on labor history. Net proceeds will benefit the work of the Olympia Historical Society & Bigelow House Museum. “Labor Wars of the Northwest,” examines labor conflict in the context of a decades-long struggle that began with the arrival of the railroads in the 1880s and permeated the region, including Olympia and Thurston County. It shines new light on tragedies like the 1919 Seattle General Strike and the 1919 Centralia Massacre. The documentary was created in part to commemorate the centennial year of those monumental events in Washington State history. “Labor Wars” was written and directed by the historian and author David J. Jepsen, who teaches Pacific Northwest History at SPSCC and Tacoma Community College. Photograph courtesy of the Polson Museum.

Art Show
(Our Love Is) Unbroken by Bars
CoCA and the artists seek to bring healing to the formerly incarcerated and awareness of the injustice of incarcerated mothers, while shedding light on systemic challenges that exacerbate recidivism, such as homelessness. As per the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness, almost 50,000 people a year enter homeless shelters immediately after exiting incarceration. The rate of homelessness in Seattle is 10 times the national average and 25% of people utilizing homelessness-related social services in King County are located in the Pioneer Square zip code, where our gallery is located. Their neighborhood sees over 2,000 arrests a year. CoCA’s May and June exhibition works to humanize these statistics and create space for formerly incarcerated women to regain their voices. During the exhibition, CoCA will take this healing to the street. Working with the Metropolitan Improvement District and Pioneer Square businesses, CoCA will host a free Mother’s Day card-making party in the gallery for unhoused in the neighborhood on May 4. All card-making materials, including painting supplies, artistic guidance, envelopes, and postage will be provided for all participants. We’ll also be hosting a panel discussion for the public to learn about the women featured in the exhibit from “(Our Love Is) Unbroken by Bars” Curator, Katie Fuller, and learn about homelessness and recidivism with Rex Hohlbein, Executive Director of Facing Homelessness. Calendar of Events: Exhibition: May 1 - June 15. Panel Discussion: Wednesday, May 1, 6-8:30 PM with curator Katie Fuller and Rex Hohlbein, Executive Director of Facing Homelessness. Public Reception: Thursday, May 2, 6-9 PM, as part of the Pioneer Square First Thursday art walk. Card-Making Workshop: Saturday, May 4, 12-2 PM.
